Thatching Materials

KS Thatchers grow all our own thatching materials on local farmland of which we have had control over for the past thirty years.

Over many years we have cultivated the land to produce the best quality thatching materials specifically for our region.

We pay detailed attention to the production of our Wheat Straw – the basic thatching material used in our operations – using time-tested traditional methods.

We only use natural organic fertilisers from local farms in the ground preparation, ensuring an environmentally friendly, locally stable product. We closely monitor every stage of the planting, growing, harvesting and storage of the crop ensuring we  produce a high quality and durable thatch product.
